Peanut Butter Lover's Month
November 21, 2011
Peanut butter is one of my favorite snacks, and apparently a lot of other people appreciate it too. November is Peanut Butter Lover’s Month! Here are some fun facts about this yummy snack!
- Peanuts are not actually nuts at all! They are legumes—like beans, peas, and lentils.
- Americans eat three pounds of peanut butter per person every year—enough PB to coat the floor of the Grand Canyon!
- One acre of peanuts will make 30,000 peanut butter sandwiches.
- Two former U.S. Presidents were peanut farmers: Thomas Jefferson and Jimmy Carter.
